Capping More Mapping

The last time I mentioned doing some vidcaps of me town-mapping, I mentioned fancy things like voiceovers and music and that hasn't happened just yet. But, I have figured a few other things out, like cropping the video a bit better, and this time I did a nine-minute chunk (with the same 8x speed boost):


I'm demonstrating the same basic technique, but this time I carry it from blank green to the finished subdivisions of individual buildings (instead of just stopping once I lay down the frontage ruler). I think it explains itself fairly well, but my inbox is always open if anyone has questions.

I'll keep poking at this. I don't think the kind of basic video editing I need to do is difficult; it's just that every new piece of creative software (even the freeware tools I've been fiddling with) feels like dropping into the cockpit of a jet fighter for the first time when you're not familiar with the tools, so my typical response is a pained "eep" followed by desperate scurrying back to Planet Comfort.

For an example of what it looks like when I keep on doing this ... a lot ... see last post!

It doesn't stay orange. Good for separations in Photoshop, though.
